Just in from WSJ: Microsoft to release Xbox One at a hefty price of $499
Microsoft said its Xbox One will be launching in November at a starting price of $499, well above the levels the company has previously set for new videogame console launches.
WOW, PC-like price point. Good luck!
Agreed regarding PS4 pricing; PS4 has similar components for the most part except for better memory; 8gb GDDR5 for PS4 vs 8gb DDR3 for xbox one. Also, sony is in a much worse financial position than microsoft..... Also, xbox one will also get revenue from xbox live subscriptions... PS customers are not used to paying for multiplayer; I'd guess that PS4 multiplayer will continue to be free...
